Living-life

«What's the good of being alive if you don't do anything?»

Kirsten Hubbard


«It is not needful for our dreams to be very grand nor very big. It is only needful for our dreams to be very shiny.»

C. JoyBell C.


«Humanity does not suffer from the disease of wrong beliefs but humanity suffers from the contagious nature of the lack of belief. If you have no magic with you it is not because magic does not exist but it is because you do not believe in it. Even if the sun shines brightly upon your skin every day, if you do not believe in the sunlight, the sunlight for you does not exist.»

C. JoyBell C.


«The mentors in my life, inspired me to fulfill my highest potential.»

Lailah Gifty Akita


«Not in the flight of ideas, but only in action is freedom. Make up your mind and come out into the tempest of the living.»

Dietrich Bonhoeffer


«You know how we’re thinking about food these days, less in terms of carbs and calories than in terms of color, vivacity, and life force? We can do the same with time. Then it’s no longer about having enough of it but about infusing color and vivacity and life force into every moment. (279)»

Victoria Moran


«I’m barely human. I’m more like a creature; to me, everything gives off a scent! Thoughts, moments, feelings, movements, words left unsaid, words barely spoken; they all have a distinct sense, distinct fragrances! Both a smell and a touch! To inhale is to capture, to experience! I can perceive and I can “touch” in so many odd ways! And so I am made up of all these scents, all these feelings! An illumination of nerve endings!»

C. JoyBell C.


«Believe in miracles. Believe in endless possibilities.»

Lailah Gifty Akita


«Don't just leave your footprints in the sand only to be washed away as the ocean waves come crashing to the shore. You want to impact the lives of others in such a way that you'll be remembered forever. You want to instill values and wisdom in the hearts and minds of others that will never be forgotten. So they may teach their children to carry on from generation to generation.»

Amaka Imani Nkosazana


«I like having options, alternate lives unlived but always possible.»

Abigail Padgett


«It is nothing to die. It is frightful not to live.»

Victor Hugo


«There are two things we should always be 1. raw and 2. ready. When you are raw, you are always ready and when you are ready you usually realize that you are raw. Waiting for perfection is not an answer, one cannot say "I will be ready when I am perfect" because then you will never be ready, rather one must say "I am raw and I am ready just like this right now, how and who I am.»

C. JoyBell C.


«As long as I am breathing, in my eyes, I am just beginning.»

Criss Jami


«You have got what it takes to live your dreams.»

Lailah Gifty Akita


«Let out your heat!»

Priscilla Koranteng


«The universe is not for man alone, but is a theater of evolution for all living beings. Live and let live is its guiding principle. 'Ahimsa Paramo Dharmah' - Non-injury is the highest religion.»

Virchand Gandhi


«It is not the end of the physical body that should worry us. Rather, our concern must be to live while we're alive - to release our inner selves from the spiritual death that comes with living behind a facade designed to conform to external definitions of who and what we are.»

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross


«The most adventurous journey to embark on; is the journey to yourself, the most exciting thing to discover; is who you really are, the most treasured pieces that you can find; are all the pieces of you, the most special portrait you can recognize; is the portrait of your soul.»

C. JoyBell C.


«Different plants thrive together in a well nurtured garden. Just as they thrive, they pass on a message to mankind - God created us all to thrive with one another and planted love in our hearts for this reason. Let's learn to embrace each other, knowing Love is all we have to keep us growing and going.»

Kemi Sogunle


«Don't think about making life better for other people who don't even deserve you, rather, focus on making your life the best, for yourself and those who love you.»

C. JoyBell C.


«I am so glad that you have never done anything, never carved a statue, or painted a picture, or produced anything outside of yourself! Life has been your art. You have set yourself to music. Your days are your sonnets.»

Oscar Wilde


«Talking is great, but don't ignore the value of listening. Pay attention to the words being spoken. Some people just love the sound of their own voice. And, when another person speaks, they are only anticipating to compete, challenge, or question what is being said. You can miss out on some important wisdom always running your mouth.»

Amaka Imani Nkosazana


«Do not wait until the near end of your life to realize that you have not fully live to love.»

Lailah Gity Akita


«Sometimes in life you find love so powerful that you get tunnel vision. You only see the one you love, the one you desire. No one or no thing gets in the way of what you feel. A love so strong which makes you feel invincible in this world. And, everywhere you go, all the people can see you glow.»

Amaka Imani Nkosazana


«Jesus came to give us life to the very edges of life.»

Craig D. Lounsbrough


«See with your mind, Speak with your heart,»

B.J. Neblett


«Make your lives a masterpiece, you only get one canvas.»

E.A. Bucchianeri


«Reading the Bible will help you get to know the word, but it’s when you put it down and live your life that you get to know the author.»

Steve Maraboli


«After all this kind of fanfare, and even more, I came to a point where I needed solitude and to just stop the machine of 'thinking' and 'enjoying' what they call 'living,' I just wanted to lie in the grass and look at the clouds...»

Jack Kerouac


«People sometimes get so lost in their own beliefs that they fail to gain truth and understanding. You can't get the whole picture just by relying on your own perception. Never be afraid of the truth.»
